SAN FRANCISCO, CA–(Marketwire – Sep 29, 2011) – At Unite, Massive Black, extraordinary art studio and game developer, announced that they will bring their awesome game art to the Unity Asset Store, a one-stop-shop for all of the Unity assets — from 3D models and textures to advanced AI scripting — that game developers need to make their games.
The addition bolsters the already amazing selection of content for sale on the Asset Store with the inclusion of Massive Black’s top tier art on their newly opened seller’s page in the Unity Asset Store. In addition, Massive Black is also happy to announce they are currently developing an interactive art demo to showcase many of the art pieces that will eventually be included on the Asset Store and illustrate the amazing creative potential they have found while working in Unity.
“Massive Black couldn’t be more excited about including our art on the Unity Asset Store,” said Massive Black CEO and Co-Founder Chris Hatala. “Our goal has always been to generate premier quality products, and we’re anxious to offer outside parties access to them. We’ve continually striven to share with the community at events like our Art Workshops and see the Unity Asset Store as a great venue to further that ideal by helping others bring their own projects to fruition. Our plan is to contribute assets that we use ourselves, so we really hope Unity users find them as useful as we do.”
Massive Black, known for its detailed modeling, fluid animation and high quality concept art for games, is the latest and greatest addition to the list of impressive developers currently selling art and tools to the Unity Asset Store. New assets will include everything from a character model to environment assets and loads of creatures. Designers can now visit their page to download the first Massive Black items up for sale and expect to see much more in the future.
“Massive Black’s contribution to the Unity Asset Store brings top-notch artwork to Unity developers worldwide,” said Caitlyn Meeks, the Unity Asset Store Manager at Unity Technologies. “Giving developers the ability to vault over the budgetary and production barriers for their games, while creating graphically compelling experiences with superior artwork, is just one facet of our commitment to democratizing game development. With Massive Black’s participation, Unity developers will have access to professionally crafted, drop-dead gorgeous artwork from one of the best studios in the industry. We couldn’t be happier.”
The Asset Store, built directly into the Unity game authoring platform, allows access to thousands of assets at the click of a button. Developers can purchase any of these additions, whether they are art, sound, code or Unity add-ons, both free and commercial, and then use the assets in any number of projects. The system allows for new and experienced developers alike to pad their asset collection while at the same time providing an awesome forum for artists and developers to sell high-quality art assets and code.
